In science:

However, we suggest that in some instances it may be more useful to model them as being due to the passage of discrete bullets of ejecta that are promptly ionized and that are ablated as they travel through the ambient medium.

The trailing ablated material is then identified as the jet, with the bullet at its head.
Two jets from the Orion (M42) `proplyds' - kinematics, morphologies and origins
Such a dynamical mechanism has the attraction that the ‘Hubble-type’ velocity law, if found in future observations of the proplyd jets, is naturally explained since material that was ablated earlier has slowed down more than material more recently incorporated into the flow.

This scenario we have outlined is qualitatively compatible with the observations, although, further quantitative modeling is needed with regards to surface heating/cooling by ablation, burst timescales, burst spectra, etc. before it can be considered further.
